The operator of a biodigester in western Michigan has until Nov. 1 to curb odors in the area or it could be shut down.
The Grand Rapids Press reports Lowell city and utility leaders met Thursday and decided to let Lowell Energy AD proceed with another odor-elimination plan.
The plant's operator first plans to install a filter and cover an outside wastewater treatment vat. Bruce Koetter, vice president Webster Environmental Associates, says it's a "temporary fix."
The company was hired by Lowell Energy to deal with the problem.
